I made some postings on here and I was doing great for well over a month, BUT, I have had a terrible slip up this week and all those not-smoking days have gone. I feel so sad and ashamed
I keep reading posts here on how long people have quit, and how well they are doing, but I cant find anything about slip-ups and what made people to slip up, whether it was a bad day at work, an argument, or whatever. And what they did to combat a slip-up? How have people dusted themselves down and tried again?
I had a cigarette on Monday after an argument with a member of my family, and quite a few since.
But my biggest problem is, My head is in a mess on a morning and a cigarette brings me round very quickly. Otherwise I am very sluggish and it takes ages to come round and its a horrible feeling
.........Does anyone recognise that problem?
People have stopped smoking and gone through worse than I have, and they didnt light up again, but I caved in. I am begining to think I must have weak willpower or something, or maybe its because its the most addictive drug in the world, I dont know, but its really winding me up.
If they banned tobacco full stop. and stopped selling cigs etc, it would make stopping smoking for me a lot easier, I think they are too freely available personally.
Sorry, I'm waffling on.........
Anyway, I want to stop again today.
I dont want carry on smoking. I hadn't realised it has taken over my life in such a big way ~ its horrible. :mad:
So "Day One" here we go
Any tips on the "first thing on a morning" problem would be very appreciated.
